Blackhawks' Kane out with injury

Patrick Kane


One of the Chicago Blackhawks’ star players is out with an injury. Patrick Kane left the first period in Sunday’s game against Calgary. The Blackhawks won that game, 4-to-2. Coach Joel Quenneville said Kane’s injury isn’t too serious, but he’ll be out for a little bit.

“Injuries are always something you have to deal with and, of course, last year it’s never going to be a perfect season as far as health-wise,” Quenneville said. “You get tested. You get challenged. Organizationally, you find out about some people and it’ll be something that we’re finding out more without Kaner here.”

The Blackhawks haven’t detailed Kane’s injury, only that it happened in his lower body. Kane has 11 goals and 16 assists so far this season.
